This info card was included in the box and detailed all the included items.
Neon Shoelaces – $2?
Nothing says the 80’s to me more than neon colors. These are great for an 80’s box.
Fruit Loops Cereal – $0.50?
This has been a popular kid’s cereal for a long time, but I don’t really associate with the 80’s per se.
Color Changing Spoon – $0.50?
This color changing spoon was fun and was an exclusive which is nice to see in a box.
Golden Girls Dishtowel – $8?
This is easily my favorite item in the box! There is no tag on the towel so I don’t know if it was made by Retro Pop Box or not but it’s so cool! I used to love watching The Golden Girls and I’m so excited to own this cheesecake recipe dishtowel.
Purple Rain Print – $5?
I love that this box included something from Prince especially after his recent and tragic passing. I love his music and think this print is a nice touch. It’s printed on heavy cardstock.
Robocop Shirt – $15?
This cotton/poly short sleeve shirt is an exclusive to the box. I have to admit I’ve never actually seen RoboCop so the shirt doesn’t have a special feeling of nostalgia the way some 80’s movies would have, but it’s still a cool shirt. I like the metallic silver printing on the black fabric.
Verdict: This was a fun box to open and go through because of the memories it brings back from my childhood. I love this retro stuff, but I wish the value had been higher. I don’t feel it reached the $45 amount they advertise on their website unless I’m way off on my estimates.
